A lovely well-equipped house - beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed a perfect extended family holiday in this beautiful property, and are happy to recommend it warmly to future guests. Four generations, the eldest 82 years and the youngest 1 year old (10 persons in total) found ample space in this lovely, well equipped and very practical house.

The bedrooms and bathrooms are large and the beds very comfortable. The lay-out is perfect for large families with ample room for meals and hanging out, yet plenty of space to be alone when needed. The house is very well kept, all furniture and equipment (sun chairs and parasols included) are of high standard. The pool is large and perfectly situated in a large green garden. The outdoors dining table in the shade provides a perfect place for long breakfasts and evening meals.

All our questions during the stay were answered and sorted out immediately. Even a baby chair for the 1 year old and a high chair for the 4 year old were in place when we arrived. Everything was clean, working and in place. We could not have wanted a more perfect house and place for our large family holiday!

Another perfect fortnight.

  • 5 of 5

Our second time to Le Gelibert. Two beautiful weeks at this fantastic farmhouse. Perfect setting, in a stunning plot. The pool, gardens and outdoor area make for a perfect family holiday. Two families enjoyed relaxing, swimming, eating and walks in the area.

Shops and Riberac market only minutes away. Ice cream in Aubetttere.

Hopefully will be back.

Wonderful and relaxing holiday home

  • 5 of 5

After returning to for the 6th year running I think that expresses how my family feel about Le Gelibert! We love it here! It is set in beautiful and peaceful surroundings and is perfect for a relaxing and stress free holiday!

The house is well equipped and comfortable with 5 large bedrooms with 4 modern bathrooms. The kitchen has everything you need for every occasion although this year due to fantastic weather we spent most of the time on the shaded patio having barbecues! It is a lovely sized house and works well to accommodate a large family or two families or a smaller family like ours!

The outside area is wonderful with a very large garden to play sports when your children force you out of your sun lounger! The pool is a lovely size with Roman steps into a shallow end and a deep end to practise diving and just flopping in! Very relaxing!!

The house is in a beautiful part of France with many attractions near by. For the more energetic there is canoeing close by in Riberac and there are many lovely pretty French villages and towns to visit. There are many opportunities to eat out the closest been a two minute car journey away in Allemans. The local town is Riberac - only ten minutes by car-which has a very good supermarket (we seem to spend a lot of time there!) and has a big market on Fridays.

We absolutely love being at Le Gelibert and would highly recommend it as a holiday destination! It is beautiful!

Superb holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

We have visited on several occasions now and love it every time! The pool is always a draw for the whole family, from jumping in, playing water polo to floating quietly on a lilo. The garden is a fantastic size - big enough for all ball games and our boys have always loved bug hunting in the garden too, even at the age of 23! The house itself is incredibly well equipped - the best we have known - which makes self-catering so much easier. However, there are plenty of restaurants around if you don't fancy cooking! Allemans (the nearest village) has a bakery, bar/restaurant and a little artisan shop selling jam, chutney and fruit cordials etc, which make great presents to take home. Riberac, the nearest town is great for supermarkets and the Friday market - the best one in the area as far as we are concerned. It has something for everyone and plenty of places to sit for those who just like to watch the world go by. The Dordogne is a beautiful place to visit and this house will definitely add to your holiday experience, providing peace, tranquility and space for all ages.

The owners have thought hard about providing all that is needed in a holiday house, which is clean and finished to a high standard - a real home from home. The table football is also a fantastic feature, providing entertainment (or stress for some!!!!!) for all ages.

Spacious, secluded, tranquil farmhouse.

  • 5 of 5

Two fabulous weeks in a beautiful villa. 4 adults, 5 children and plenty of space. Secluded, but close to shops and lovely villages. Pool was perfect, set in big garden. Run in the morning followed by lazy days by the pool with kids.

Best villa we've stayed in, had everything you could want.

From booking to arriving and leaving all faultless.

Thank you.

The 10 minute drive to Riberac descends through fields of sunflowers and maize, groves of walnut trees and orchards to the valley of the Dronne. Riberac has hypermarkets, a wide range of shops and an excellent Friday market for fresh food (including fantastic fresh fish) and local produce. Restaurants ranging from the cheap and cheerful to the sophisticated lie within 5 to 15 minutes drive as does horse riding, canoeing, tennis and golf. There are some pretty walks and bike rides along local lanes and tracks straight from the house. Local sightseeing includes the delightful village of Aubterre, the castle of Bourdeilles and the abbey at Brantome while a little further away are the vineyards of St Emilion and Pomerol and the towns of Bergerac and Perigueux. Bordeaux is well worth a day trip as is Futuroscope (French theme park) and Vallee des Singes (close encounters with monkeys large and small).

Other Activities: canoeing, walking, cycling, river beach 25 mins drive
